On Thursday, the Delhi University organised its open day session at Maharaja Agrasen College where student asked questions about how they have to procure the EWS certificate. They were told by the officials that an acknowledgment receipt from the government authorities would suffice for now. From the day the open days started on May 31, admission officials have been flooded with queries about how one gets EWS certificate or how the government officials were unaware about it. Delhi government had said that they have notified various SDMs, who have to issue the certificates about the issue. This year, the varsity has effected a 10 per cent increase in seats for the EWS and there will be a rise of close to 6,000 seats, taking the total number of seats for undergraduate courses to 62,000.

Rabat – The UN Security Council has announced its Provisional Programme of Work of Security Council for January 2019.In its agenda, the Security Council is dedicating January to consulting on peacekeeping missions in the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.The Western Sahara conflict is on the agenda, with the consultation on MINURSO due to take place on January 29.In December, the Security Council Report announced that the UN Secretary-General’s personal envoy, Horst Kohler, would brief the Security Council on the conflict and MINURSO in January. The consultation agenda targeting UN missions follows US National Security Advisor John Bolton’s remarks addressing what he perceives to be unnecessary UN missions that fail to end stalled conflicts.Regarding MINURSO, Bolton expressed frustration that 27 years after its creation, the body has proven “ineffective” and has not ended the conflict over the region.Read Also: Kohler to Brief Security Council on Western Sahara, MINURSO in JanuaryIn addition to MINURSO, the 15 members of the Security Council will also consult on MONUSCO operating in the Republic of Congo, UNOWAS in West Africa and, UNFICYP in Cyprus.In December at the Heritage Foundation, Trump’s national security advisor discussed the US’s financial contributions to the UN missions in African conflict zones.“The United States will no longer provide indiscriminate assistance across the entire continent, without focus or prioritization,” Bolton said.He added that his country will “not tolerate this longstanding pattern of aid without effect, assistance without accountability, and relief without reform.”US Representative for UN Management and Reform Ambassador Cherith Norman Chalet echoed Bolton’s remarks.“Unfortunately in a deeply dissatisfying and disappointing turn of events, every country decided reform was good and right for the UN, but not for how it is financed,” she said.The US is a top contributor to the UN budget, providing $10 billion annually.

Responding to the publication today of the government’s Consumer Landscape Review, Motor Codes, the provider of OFT-approved codes of practice for the car industry, welcomes the announcement that the government-backed self-regulatory model is set to continue as a key means of delivering consumer protection.Changes proposed in the review include:Trading Standards Institute (TSI) to establish successor to Consumer Code Approval Scheme (CCAS) from April 2013.Creation of National Trading Standards Board (NTSB) to deliver strengthened enforcement of consumer protection and combat rogue traders.Creation of Competition and Markets Authority as a successor to The Office of Fair Trading and Competition Commission.Citizens Advice to take on OFT’s responsibility for delivering consumer information and advice.Consultation on the future of voluntary consumer codes of conduct concluded that continued self-regulation, rather than legislation, coupled with a clear, structured advocacy route for consumers was the preferred way forward. Chris Mason, managing director at Motor Codes, believes that Motor Codes is well-placed to provide a solid support mechanism for motorists:“Having gathered feedback from tens of thousands of motorists through satisfaction surveys and significantly reduced consumer complaint volumes through the inception of an independent advice service to support that offered by Citizens Advice, Motor Codes has shown the value to consumers of effective self-regulation.“Motor Codes already has strong a working relationship with Trading Standards, with Ron Gainsford OBE, TSI chief executive, chairing our compliance panel. We look forward to working with TSI enhancing the current consumer codes model and will continue to offer support to Citizens Advice through our established advice and conciliation service.”Motor Codes operates OFT-approved codes of practice under the current Consumer Code Approval Scheme for new car sales and service and repair and its network numbers almost 7,000 subscribing garages nationwide. Its advice line currently handles around 10,000 calls per year; this advocacy service resulting in just a 7% requirement for formal conciliation cases from all contacts.

Stacie Pridden was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in 2002Credit:Adam Gray/South West News Service On her blog – Life is Worth The Fight – she took her readers through the ups and downs of her illness. But she finally underwent her organ transplant at Papworth Hospital in Cambridge in May 2015.Her body has accepted the heart well. “Everyone knows when they have a transplant that they will eventually go into some form of rejection,” she said.”I kind of hoped I would reach the five-year average but unfortunately I was one of the unlucky people that went into rejection sooner.”I think my family find it hard watching me go through it again because this time I’m a lot iller than I was the first time and they’re having to do a lot more for me.” I think my family find it hard watching me go through it again because this time I’m a lot iller than I was the first timeStacie Pridden A LOT of pain today.

It feels a lot more urgent this time.”A double lung transplant is even rarer the second time around. I believe it has only been done twice in the world.”Nine out of ten people can’t go back on the waiting list for various reasons.”I’m just extremely lucky that I’m still young and that my drugs haven’t had time to destroy my other organs yet.”I’m still regular old me, I’m just very ill again and I’m using a wheelchair again and I can’t really walk very far.”General day-to-day stuff is very hard for me yet again.

However, she is at the back of the queue for a donor and a “transplant on top of a transplant” operation has only been carried out twice in the world.She said: “Whereas the first time around I had 20 years of deteriorating, this time I had six weeks to deal with it. An inspirational blogger who captivated Twitter as she underwent a double lung and heart transplant has been forced to turn back to the waiting list after her body rejected the lungs.Stacie Pridden, 26, touched people around the world with a blog documenting her journey as she waited for the organs.The risky transplant went ahead in May 2015 and, shortly afterwards, she posted a photo to her Twitter followers saying: “I’m alive guys.” She appeared to recover well until she got an infection and was diagnosed with chronic lung rejection in July last year.Her lung functionality dropped from 80 to 25 per cent in just six weeks and doctors have now told her she will need another double transplant.Miss Pridden, from Pinehurst in Swindon, Wiltshire, is now relying on oxygen and a cocktail of medication to stay alive, and doctors have been unable to tell her how long she may have to live.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery thinks the Premier League has both the best players and teams in world football.The former Sevilla boss spoke to Sky Sports ahead of FIFA’s The Best awards, in which Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric, and Mohamed Salah were competing for the top prize.“They are very great teams here and every match, like yesterday against Everton, is very difficult.“[There are] very good players, I think the best players and best teams in the world in this competition, they are here.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The Gunners are on a five-game winning streak and Emery believes the squad is buying into his methods and showcasing that on the field.“The players have shown since the first day of pre-season they are trying every day to do the best,” said Emery.“I think we are improving every day and I am very happy.“But we need also time, we need to continue working, improving. Winning is better I think to find this but I think we are on the way.”
The Board of Clark County Commissioners won’t have to stop praying before public meetings thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court decision.The high court’s 5-4 decision Monday upheld a local government’s authority to start public meetings with a prayer. That’s divine news for the board of commissioners, where religious invocations have commonly kicked off meetings since March 2013.Republican Commissioner David Madore lauded the court’s decision in a post on Facebook.“We need God’s help and wisdom and we ought to thank Him for His help, blessings and protection,” Madore wrote.He directed people to read the court’s majority opinion, saying it was very clear about praying in Jesus’ name.The board is the only local governing body that regularly starts meetings with a prayer. Republican Commissioner Tom Mielke introduced the idea in March 2013 and, at the time, said he wanted to invite a diverse collection of religious leaders to participate.The city of Washougal also briefly discussed the idea last year, but it didn’t go beyond the public discussion stage.Not all of the county’s invocations have been strictly Christian. Prayers have come from a Baha’i chairperson, a Messianic Jewish pastor, a Jewish rabbi and others.The Supreme Court’s decision likely won’t change how meetings begin in Clark County’s largest city.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt said he’s never been approached by a member of the public or the council about adding prayer to the weekly meeting agenda. City officials don’t make a point of avoiding saying prayers while in their official capacity, he said. For example, last week the city hosted a National Day of Prayer event.But if the idea of a pre-meeting prayer was broached, Leavitt said he wouldn’t support it.
Warangal: The whole gamut of political equations in erstwhile Warangal district seems to be in transition with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is pushing its pawns precisely to seize the political space left in the backdrop of the miserable failure of the Congress and the Telugu Desam.The BJP, which enjoyed a considerable success in Warangal politics in the past, reduced to a pedestrian in last few years. The deplorable vote share it got in the Assembly elections reflect that it’s not a force to reckon with, anymore. However, the fallout of Assembly elections that trimmed both main opposition parties – Congress and TDP – gave the BJP a new lease of life to strengthen its position in Telangana. Also Read – Man tied up to a tree and thrashed in Nalgonda for harassing woman Advertise With Us The combo of rising popularity of Narendra Modi Government and the BJP’s aggressive strategic approach to occupy the political vacuum has made a lot of leaders to look towards that party. Warangal is no exception with quite a few leaders belonging to Congress and TDP appear to be making a beeline to join the saffron bandwagon. Against this backdrop, the BJP also intensified its activity in the erstwhile Warangal district. The frequency of national and State level leaders participating in the party activities such as membership drive and party meetings has gone up of late. Beginning with party national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao and national secretary N Indrasena Reddy, a host of leaders – former ministers Babu Mohan and Gunde Vijayarama Rao, Telangana State in-charge P Krishna Das, former Rajya Sabha member Rapolu Ananda Bhaskar, former MLAs Yendala Laxminarayana and Chintala Ramachandra Reddy have been to Warangal in last few weeks, indicating party’s hectic efforts to strengthen its base. Also Read – With 61 feet high, Khairatabad Ganesh claimed to be tallest idol in India Advertise With Us “After their party’s debacle in Assembly elections and facing a rout in Lok Sabha polls, the Congress leaders are low in spirits. Many of that party leaders are considering joining the BJP which they feel the only alternative to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). The BJP is also trying to woo them and TDP leaders,” a senior Congress leader told The Hans India. Advertise With Us Meanwhile, speculation is rife that a host of TDP leaders including politburo member Revuri Prakash Reddy, State general secretary Eega Mallesham, State secretary Pulluru Ashok Kumar etc are also ready to join the saffron party in a few days. However, these leaders are vehemently denying, sources say that sooner or later they are bound to hug the BJP. On the other hand, Rajya Sabha member (TDP) Garikapati Mohan Rao is all set to join the BJP at a public meeting to be held at the exhibition grounds in Hyderabad on August 18, along with his supporters. It’s learnt that Garikapati is trying to convince as many TDP leaders as possible to join the BJP along with him. The latest to join the saffron party was senior Congress leader and Wardhannapet former MLA Kondeti Sridhar. It’s learnt that senior Congress leader V Rajavardhan Reddy of Mahabubabad and Gandra Satyanarayana Rao of Bhupalpally are also in consultation with the BJP top brass in the State. Against this backdrop, BJP State President K Laxman’s visit to Warangal on Wednesday is seen as an indicator to what is in store for the party in the months to follow.

PSA: Don’t use system cleaners, they won’t speed up your PC by Ashwin on August 05, 2019 in Tutorials – Last Update: August 06, 2019 – 52 commentsEvery time someone asks me to fix a slow computer I almost certainly get a question about a program that I’d recommend to speed up the system.I hate these kinds of questions because it more than likely involves a debate about the usefulness of such applications; I try to explain that I cannot recommend any as none will speed up the PC significantly but that is often met with refusal to believe that.Use Windows’ built-in tools insteadExpectations are simple most of the time; download and install an application to magically speeds up the PC in one-click. The expectation is seemingly confirmed by sites on the Internet that claim that certain system speed up tools will magically speed up the PC significantly.Tech-savvy users often refer to system speed-up programs and tune-up programs as snake oil. The programs may, at best, clean up some space on the device and remove some start-up programs to speed up system boot. At worst, use could lead to bigger issues as they may make changes to the Registry and core system files.I won’t lie to you: I have been using CCleaner for a decade until it was acquired by Avast in 2017. But that’s on me, I use multiple browsers and I was lazy to open them and wipe the data on each browser, and CCleaner offered a fast way of doing that.Why should you do it manually when a one-click option exists? Lesson learnt. I still see professional technicians recommend it to many users and I’d like to think they are doing so because it is the easier way. Instead of having to teach users how to manually maintain their systems, they simply point to a system cleaner or other speed-up programs, e.g. game boosters, and are done with the client.I’m not saying that system cleaners are inherently bad by default; only that there is a discrepancy that needs to be addressed. There are certainly programs that are pure snake oil, maybe borderline deceptive.Unethical marketingSystem cleaners, system tuners, driver update programs, and what not. I’m tired of seeing this stuff everywhere. They also appear in Google Search results when you search for actual issues. Search for a particular error code, or some specific hardware issue. The majority of the results have the tags [Solved] or [Fix], or something similar. The corresponding articles are written by the companies, which own these snake oil products, or by companies that make money when users who want to fix issues that they experience from the companies that produce them.That’s right, they’re using SEO and also paid advertising campaigns to reach large audiences. Don’t get me wrong, some of these articles and the fixes they suggest are actually good and legit solutions. But they do keep recommending paid applications in the guides and usually near the top of the guide as one of the main solutions to address certain issues. Many of these guides appear to have been written solely for the reason of selling software.I have even seen YouTube videos where a “demo” is showcased as well. People who watch it may get tricked and end up paying money to fix the issue. One of the main problems with these paid applications is that these don’t fix the issues that users attempt to fix usually; many clear some data, fix unrelated and harmless Registry issues, or file associations. Most are not designed to fix “real” issues that users experience.It gets worse. I spoke to someone who worked in affiliate marketing in their free time. I was shocked to learn that some top selling software (besides antivirus and VPNs apparently) is system cleaning programs. He had no idea why, even with no Pros/cons listed on the pages or even a review, the products just sell like hot cake. What I cannot understand is the fact people pay for these as most moved from a pay-once model to a subscription system. Users may read something about “speeding up a PC” and buy a subscription hoping that the claims are true.Expensive antivirus editions do that tooSome antivirus companies websites have products which are “recommended, best-sellers”, generally the ones which are featured and are often the most expensive. Click on learn more or whatever option there is, and you will find that as part of their “Internet Security or Total Security or Premium or Premier or Ultimate edition/version, etc.”, they offer additional features. These may include a password manager, software updater, system cleaner, game mode, browser cleanup. I’m not saying all of these are bad, but the majority of features that I tested were just bloatware and barely useful.Here’s how to analyze a PC (in my opinion, and no particular order)1. Run a virus scan – Check if the computer has some malware or miner which is bogging down the system resources.2. Check background tasks/services – Task Manager/Services.msc is fine for most, but advanced users may want to use Autoruns, Process Explorer, RAMMap and VMMap.3. Windows Updates (includes driver updates but that is usually not recommended) – A buggy update which is slowing the PC could have a hot-fix which resolves the issue, so can a missing driver. Check if newer drivers are available and install those, but create a backup first.4. Check HDD status (read/write errors, speeds) – Run disk check, or use CrystalDiskInfo/CrystalDiskMark, or something which can read S.M.A.R.T. data. I’ve even used the trial version of Hard Disk Sentinel, as a second opinion tool before replacing a failing HDD.5. System File Checker – Windows’ own troubleshooter/fixer can resolve the issue.6. Uninstall unwanted/unused programs – Go through the list patiently and uninstall programs that you aren’t using. Sometimes you may get bundleware/adware installed unintentionally when you are installing a different program.7. Disk Cleanup (Disk cleanup/Storage Sense, free up some space on C:) – This is what you should be using anyway and is the safest tool to rely on. Don’t forget to use the “Check System Files” option to clean up those large chunks of Windows Update downloads. You can also use Cleanmgr+ a third-party replacement for the deprecated Disk Cleanup tool.All the above can be done for free. You only need a third-party software for Step 4 (optionally for step 1 and 2), but those are free anyway. In case of hardware issues, read Martin’s troubleshooting guides. If none of those fixes your issues, take a complete backup of your data and reset/re-install Windows.Here is a small selection of guides:Fix Critical Process Died in Windows 10 ErrorFix Windows 10 can’t be restored after you install an updateHow to fix Boot BCD startup errors on Windows PCsIntelTechnologyAccessService.exe taking up all the memory? Here is a fixMy adviceIt’s not in my place to tell anyone what to use but I feel obliged to advise users to stay away from stuff that does not help or can harm computers. My advice: stop paying for system tuning software as it is not worth it. Whatever speed difference you may experience is probably a placebo effect. .If you are hell-bent on using a system cleaner, at least make sure you create a backup before using such a program. Use Windows’ built-in option or Macrium Reflect Free to image your drive, and make sure that you save it on a different hard drive.While you may be able to speed up your PC by freeing up space on the hard drive, disabling auto-start items, or uninstalling programs that run in the background, you may be able to speed it up significantly by upgrading hardware. Two of the top options are to replace a platter-based hard drive with a Solid State Drive, and to increase the available RAM. The options require little technical know-how; replacing the CPU and/or motherboard may work as well but it is more complicated.Now You: What is your take on system cleaners and speed up tools?SummaryArticle NamePSA: Don’t use system cleaners, they won’t speed up your PCDescriptionPSA: Don’t use system cleaners, they won’t speed up your PC. They could harm your computer. We explain why tune up programs are snake oil, and the alternatives that you can turn to.Author AshwinPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
